Sade - Pearls



"There is a woman in Somalia
Scraping for pearls on the roadside
There's a force stronger than nature
Keeps her will alive
This is how she's dying
She's dying to survive
Don't know what she's made of
I would like to be that brave

She cries to the heaven above
There is a stone in my heart
She lives a life she didn't choose
And it hurts like brand-new shoes

Hurts like brand-new shoes

There is a woman in Somalia
The sun gives her no mercy
The same sky we lay under
Burns her to the bone
Long as afternoon shadows
It's gonna take her to get home
Each grain carefully wrapped up
Pearls for her little girl

Hallelujah
Hallelujah

She cries to the heaven above
There is a stone in my heart
She lives in a world she didn't choose
And it hurts like brand-new shoes
Hurts like brand-new shoes"



If you're hungry, or cold, or scared, or feel desperate.... if you are going through pain... if you feel lost... if you have lost... if you're alone... if you feel there is no hope... if you are in danger or if you're hurting right now... if you are suffering... if there is no escape... if life is not how it should be for you....

Just know I am thinking about you. Take a deep breath and allow my tears to hold some of your burden. I love you, and I am hurting with you. Please take comfort just a little bit in the love I send to you. You are not forgotten.

You're not thinking about me.

You're making a post on the internet, hoping for flags.

I was listening to this song (Pearls), and I began to contemplate people dying of starvation, and poverty, and wars, genocides, and treatable dis-ease. Thinkig of human trafficking, modern day slavery, and forced sex black-market. Thinking of those suffering abuse of so many kinds.

My heart melted and I wish so much to change it. I can only do what I can do, so there is full intent in this op to comfort you.

(This is true empathy and love I am feeling for all of you. If I was seeking flags I would have posted this in Metaphysics/Philosophy forum instead of the lesser read 'Off Topic; General Chit Chat' section. I'm sorry you can not feel my intent.)
